The article is a skeleton. \n\nGamma, beta and alpha radiation are different, and all but gamma are relatively easily blocked. \n\nExposure to radionuclides ingested results in concentration in some tissues, depending on the element. This is like injected radioactive tracers. The gamma, beta and alpha decays do maximal damage internally. \n\nCesium is distributed everywhere because it acts like potassium. Uranium and plutonium tend to migrate to bone and marrow, which is highly problematic. Strontium to bone where it takes the place of calcium. Uranium and plutonium can also get into lung tissue by aerosol. Iodine goes to the thyroid unless the thyroid is fully supplied. \n\nSo some parts of treatments vary by type of exposure, some are general. \n\nUranium and plutonium pulmonary exposure can be responsive to sodium bicarbonate and lavage (carefully done). Chelating agents can help clear them in blood before they move to marrow where they do serious damage. \n\nCesium can be flushed by drinking potassium salt fluids like gatorade or diluted seawater. Srontium can be flushed by drinking calcium fluids for months. Most energy drinks have calcium, and of course milk, and many other foods. Everyone knows to supplement with iodine salts to keep radioactive iodine out of the thyroid as much as possible. But the window is very short because the half-life of iodine-131 is 8 days. Iodine-125 has a half-life of 59 days, so it's still useful if someone has been exposed. \n\nGeneral treatment:\nPABA, (para-amino benzoic acid) a B vitamin, can be given in 2 gram doses (up to about 5 grams) 5 times a day, orally. This is one of the most useful things to do to help the body's DNA repair mechanisms. People with PABA metabolism deficiency have problems. It is good to supplement that with a reasonable B-Complex. Continue for 3-6 months. \n\nCalendula oil is used in cancer treatment to prevent and heal radiation burns. It works. Up to 2 ml several times a day taken internally. Continue for 2-3 months. \n\nCod liver oil. The vitamin A and D are necessary for healing and membrane maintenance. The omega-3s help with inflammation and immune function. One month at high supplementation followed by 2 months at medium. High is around 50,000 IU of D per day from the oil. \n\nHyperbaric oxygen can be helpful to the immune system after radiation fighting apoptosis and saving leukocytes. 20-30 treatments.
